Another Day to Praise the Lord!

I want to give praise where it is due! Thank you father for seeing a need and answering prayers. Yesterday my daddy would have been 52 yesterday. He has been gone almost 17years. I dread holidays, his birthday, my birthday and the day of his death each year.

This year was NO different. I think I told my close friends a week in advance now look friday is..... As Friday rolled around it was no different. I woke with daddy on my mind and heart. I cried getting girls to school and cried until I left for a 10 am meeting. At my meeting we talked about it and I really couldn't see any good. BUT as the day went on God made a way.

I spent the entire day and evening with church leaders and friends. I served at a meeting on Friday night and loved being at my church. God knew what I needed and made a way. Even though I had dreaded the day for at least a week it turned out to be a good day.

Thank you to my wonderful church leaders/friends for allowing me to be a part of your life. There are no words to express my gratitude and love for you all.

Hey Daddy! aAnother year has past. God is blessing me and taking care of me. I miss you terribly. You have some beautiful grandkids. Maddison soon to be 13, Hannah 11, Mikel Ann 10 and Cale Michael just turned two. You would have just ate them all up. I wish I could have just one more day with you.

I wish we could take the girls to sonic, or let them see that their grandpa had no rhythm. :-)

Ma Shirley is doing good. She continues to walk and keep her self active. I know she misses you terribly. I cant imagine the loss in her heart.

I love you so much. I hope that you can see us and all that is going on. Brian and the girls are my life. I talk of you often and try to let the girls know as much about you as possible....

Happy Birthday my sweet daddy! You are missed & loved.

I miss my time with you!

The last few weeks I have been dealing with something very personal. Like a literal waging war inside of me. Not sleeping not eating and really just going through the motions. The last week I haven't slept worth a dang. The last three nights to be more specific I "finally" decided just maybe reading my bible would put me to sleep.
Last night was no different. But as I read psalms this is what was in my heart. I thought I would share.
There He was just waiting, In an old familiar place. An empty spot beside him where I once used to wait. To be filled with strength and wisdom for the battle of the day. I would have passed Him by again. But I clearly heard Him say.
**I miss my time with you. Those moments together. I need to be with you each day. And it hurts me when you say, your too busy. Busy trying to serve me. How can you serve me, When your spirits empty there's a longing in my heart; wanting more than just a part of you... I miss my time with you..

What an amazing thought that God wants to spend time with me. Why in the world do I continue to run and continue to not give Him the time that is due Him...

Wow! So here is my thought & heart for the day. I pray I never have to be kept awake all night again just so that my Father can have the time that is already HIS!

Be Blessed!
